OpenSolar, GSES create knowledge platform for Australian solar installers
OpenSolar and Global Sustainable Energy Solutions (GSES) has announced a first-of-its-kind platform integration partnership that offers Australian solar installers a one-stop shop for running their solar business while securing and maintaining Australian Clean Energy Council accreditations.
The integration between OpenSolar and GSES marks the launch of the OpenSolar Academy – OpenSolar’s commitment to delivering not only cutting-edge software tools but also the knowledge necessary for solar professionals to grow their businesses and excel at what they do.
This partnership creates a seamless experience between designing and selling solar systems to customers and participating in a wide variety of leading training courses such as PV and batteries design and installation, Australian standards, and BOS equipment. This is useful not only to keep accreditations up to date for a solar business, but it opens the door to more knowledge for more of a solar company’s employees in the native software environment that they use daily.
“Since the election it’s very clear to us that Australia intends to double down on its leadership in rooftop solar,” OpenSolar chief executive and co-founder Andrew Birch says.
“Experienced Australian installers and new people that will undoubtedly now enter the solar workforce will benefit from the leading solar design and sales platform now combined with the leading solar knowledge platform. We’re proud to launch the OpenSolar Academy with GSES.”
GSES managing director and founder, Geoff Stapleton says the company leads Australia in renewable energy engineering, training and consultancy.
“The next logical step for us is to integrate our online, self-paced training with a toolset that Australian installers are using every day to design, sell and install for their customer,” he says.
“The partnership is well-positioned to support Australia’s growing renewable energy workforce.”
Starting on 1 June 2022, Australian solar professionals can go to www.opensolar.com/academy to learn more about this new capability and select the courses most suited to the needs of their business and their team.
